We are college admissions experts, passionate about helping students find and apply to colleges that meet their academic, social and financial goals. We bring researched knowledge to the college search and application process:

  • What are colleges looking for?
  • What can make an application stand out?
  • Which colleges might be good financial fits?

We love that no two students are the same – each boasting unique credentials and aspirations. Having visited and researched hundreds of colleges, we help each student put together a well-balanced and interesting college list. We help all students set a course to success by providing individualized assistance. And, perhaps most importantly, we relieve the stress of the process through our knowledge, guidance and organizational tools.

We have been featured speakers at multiple Burbank Unified School District college events. We are members of the Higher Education Consultants Association and the Western Association for College Admissions Counseling and subscribe to the HECA and NACAC standards of good practice.
